Recipe: Chef Brian Harvey’s Italian Cheese Fonduta

As you all know by now, this month is all about the kids at BRAVO! We are participating in the Dine Out & Donate program to support No Kid Hungry, we have our kids coloring contest AND our kids dough contest. In addition to all of that, we thought we’d share a kid-friendly and kid-approved recipe from Chef Brian Harvey. Enjoy!



Italian Cheese Fonduta

8 oz Fontina
8 oz Gruyere
5 tsp cornstarch
1 cup white wine
1 cup vegetable broth
salt and pepper to taste

Shred cheeses and toss with cornstarch till evenly coated.
In small sauce pot, combine wine and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and stir in half the cheese until melted then add other half of cheese and continue to stir until all cheese has melted. Season with salt and pepper. Place over low heat to keep cheese melted.


Serve with fruit such as apples or grapes, ham, vegetables, bread or crackers. It’s a great, healthy way to get the kids to eat their fruits & veggies!
